Our Method

The path  to recovery and relaxation

Our progressive dynamic one-on-one stretching method takes you through your available range of motion, targeting specific muscle groups, and gently guiding your muscles to elongate through repetition and relaxation. Each movement is personalized for the needs of your body as your stretch therapist takes you through a series of movements designed to increase flexibility and improve range of motion while expanding myofascial pathways for greater oxygenation and greater circulation. These guided stretches are performed in multiple repetitions and only held for a few seconds. The repetitive motion increases awareness of individual muscle responses to improve alignment and restore balance resulting in less tension around your muscles, reducing discomfort, and increasing mobility that allows you to perform better, recover faster, and relax at your best.

Our Story

Built by athletes

Dr Jessica Moyer and Dr Monica Vieth Munoz are collegiate athletes who, throughout their lives,  have dedicated themselves to health, fitness, and athletics.  They are sisters who dreamed of going into business together by serving athletes and serving their community in the health and fitness industry. Identifying a trend of increased injuries due to specialization of youth sports and identifying an increased focus of adults to get fit in a variety of new activities, they noticed that not enough time is being spent on the recovery from these sports and activities. Recognizing this gap, these two sisters have created an opportunity to promote stretching and educate youth athletes and the entire community on the importance of flexibility in order to prevent injuries and improve quality of life into their later years. We break our bodies down, and we need to build them back!
